Local Greenhouse Offers Free Classes

Local gardeners can learn about growing house plants indoors this weekend and what trees and shrubs thrive in Wyoming. News Director Leslie Stratmoen has the details.

Would-be gardeners can learn about African violets and how to keep houseplants healthy this weekend at a local gardening center, and put in an order for trees and shrubs at a reduced price. Co-owner Janelle Gray of Landon’s Greenhouse and Nursery in Sheridan talked with me about Saturday’s workshops on this week’s Public Pulse news talk show.

Just the mention of African violets prompted an unexpected response because it triggered a long-forgotten memory of my grandmother willing her beloved and always thriving African violets to me, and I’m afraid, I failed to live up to the task.

Then after lunch, at 1 o’clock, nursery manager Keith Kershaw said he’ll be talking about what trees and shrubs work well in this area of Wyoming.

The last workshop starts at 3 and will focus on gardening that can be done even now, in the middle of winter.

She said the classes are free, but some of the materials for take home projects will be available for purchase. Organizers suggest pre-registration, because space is limited. That can be done by calling the greenhouse, at 672-8340. The greenhouse is located at 505 College Meadows Drive in Sheridan.
